The one who catches the Perth Stadium bus like an illegal immigrant by only to gunzel for buses & trains and/or to go anywhere else.

TP3085 always operates the first 654 trip to Perth Stadium.

Did a trip down south to Albany today. Spotted 1445 on an 806 and 1449 on an 808. Is Albany getting any of the older Volvos going down to replace the old O405NHs.

They may be getting those registered from 1466-80 that are based at Midland. After all, Midland and Albany are controlled by the same company.

If Albany is yet to receive replacements for their NHs, they won't be far away now with so few of them left in service in the Perth metro area, and a number of Volvos beginning to appear elsewhere in the regions.

Albany won't get 1466 as that's permanently on Midland shuttle

That's a Path bus so IF it were going anywhere it would probably go Kalgoorlie or Geraldton, but neither of those towns have any NHs left to replace so I doubt it will be going anywhere any time soon, if at all. Current approach seems to be keeping buses with the same operator where possible.

That one is an oddball like 2135/37/56 and 2244. Squiddy couldn't have said it better.
